Wallerstein e os dominós

«Now, who are winners and losers? We shall not know for at least six months, perhaps longer, who will actually come to power in Tunisia, in Egypt, indeed everywhere in the Arab world. Spontaneous uprisings create a situation like that in Russia in 1917 when, in Lenin's famous phrase, "power lay in the street," and therefore an organized, determined force could seize it, which the Bolsheviks did.
The actual political situation in each Arab state is different. There is no Arab state today that has a strong organized, secular, radical party like the Bolsheviks, ready to try to take power.»

Será boa ideia prestar alguma atenção ao homem que há décadas anda a prever as mutações que hoje nos rodeiam.
